I think I just threw up in my mouth.
“It shows one thing. I’m the conservative leader who can unite the party,” the Arizona senator said in a brief interview with The Associated Press.”
If nothing else, this statement proves what a liar this man is!
I know how you feel. All we have been offered is a collection of “American Idol” contestants playing that they are the “most moderately conservative electable” guy. It may not be the final death of the Republican Party, but it sure seems like a “Do Not Rescusitate” order has been issued. It does not have to mean an end to viable conservatism, though. The party should be the vehicle for conservatism, but instead conservatism became the vehicle for the party. One very good reason to disassociate ourselves from McCain’s claim of being “conservative” is that I believe he will visibly and very publicly become unhinged in the course of any general election which could tarnish all conservatives.
